Exemplary Programs
All of our students have exposure to visual and performing arts. Though all students receive education in music and art other opportunities for study include: Band, Ballet, Chorus, Drama, Art Studies, Instrumental Lessons, and Percussion Ensemble.
Providence Creek Academy provides many opportunities for artistic growth. An education in the arts teaches technical skills, critical thinking, culture, and problem solving and promotes self-confidence.

Providence Creek Academy offers a rigorous sports program that emphasizes teamwork, good sportsmanship, and being a positive role model. While our program continuously grows, we currently offer: Football, Cheerleading, Cross Country, Baseball, Softball, Volleyball, and Boys' and Girls' Basketball. A dedicated, knowledgeable coaching staff instructs the fundamentals of the sport while supporting academics. Our student athletes represent themselves, their parents, and Providence Creek Academy while building skills, strength, and passion.

At PCA, we focus on Academics, Athletics, and the Arts for kindergarten through 8th grade. This focus allows teachers to educate the whole child. The goal of the staff is not just teaching your child subject matter, it’s educating your child to become a better citizen inside and outside of the classroom. We believe in a disciplined climate and high expectations for our children. Our staff has strong relationships with students, parents, colleagues, and administration; this promotes helpful interactions that positively affect our community. PCA is a close-knit family in which communication is constant and always evolving.
Our collegiate-styled campus allows for an extension of the classroom beyond four walls. Our students travel between buildings to attend classes in art, music, world culture and international education, physical education, health, library, and technology. The vast landscape allows for exploration and discovery of the world around us.
